Freezable Tuna Sandwiches

I don't know about you but one of the things I can't seem to find enough time to do in the morning is find enough time to make a really good sandwich for my husband's lunch, Erik loves tuna fish so when I came across this delicious variation which can be made ahead and frozen, I had to pass it along. You can pop them in the lunch bag still frozen in the morning and by lunchtime they'll be ready to eat. This recipe is the creation of Linda Larsen and is found in her cookbook Everything Meals for a Month.

You can also form and make these sandwiches to eat immediately!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons whipped salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
1 (6 ounce) can chunk tuna, drained
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup shredded carrot
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices whole wheat bread
Preparation:In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and whipped salad dressing and beat until smooth. Stir in tuna, onions, carrot, and lemon juice and blend well to combine.
Spread softened butter thinly on each slice of bread and spread tuna filling to make sandwiches. Wrap in freezer wrap and place in gallon freezer bag. Label sandwiches and freeze.
To thaw, let thaw overnight in refrigerator, or add to brown bag lunches in the morning and let thaw until lunchtime. Make sure sandwiches are eaten within 2 hours of being completely thawed.
